SCI Foundation is committed to science-based African lion conservation. We assist lion range states in completing national lion management plans, which allow governments to manage populations in a safe, sustainable manner. Management plans target the immediate threats to lions and provide conservation strategies aimed at addressing these threats. To date, we have assisted Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania and Zimbabwe in developing their national plans, and have funded the publication of Namibia’s and Zambia’s national lion management plan. SCI Foundation also assists the regional conservation strategies co-authored by IUCN, Wildlife Conservation Society, and the African Lion Working Group, among other partners.
